ABE?s first priority is his family, KAY his wife and his two kids: JAMES and ANGEL. His choice to abstain from Thomas? bachelor party for a fun-filled Saturday night unpacking boxes with the family in their new home wasn?t a hard decision for him to make. However, after hours of warfare against Kay?s campaigning and Thomas? continuous calls-Kay finally convinces Abe that as the best man it was his appointed duty to take part in the bachelor party ritual. Abe reluctantly gives in, but little did he know he would open himself up to the high- speed world of the unseen glare. Later, at the bachelor party Abe makes a decision to sit on the curb when the entertainment arrives. This leaves him as the only one with his shield of armor down, planting the seed to family- destruction by download.
